NEW YORK (WCBS 880) -- It's been a busy week for Cardi B.

Two days after the Grammy nominee announced she was spliiting from her husband, Offset, she was in court in NYC.

A judge issued orders of protection Friday against the platinum rapper in a case involving a melee at a New York strip club.

The hip hop star appeared in court Friday after a summons was issued on Oct. 1 for misdemeanor reckless endangerment and assault.

Her lawyer has said she didn't harm anybody.

Police said Cardi B and her entourage were at the club when she argued with a 23-year-old bartender. They say a fight broke out during which chairs, bottles and hookah water pipes were thrown, slightly injuring the woman and another employee.

Cardi B's "Invasion of Privacy" is among the nominees announced Friday for the 2019 Grammy Awards' album of the year. She scored a total of five nominations.
